This was one of our best meals during our trip to Peru (everything from bread to mains to desserts were all top notch). Although this is an upscale restaurant our server was very welcoming and provided exceptional, attentive service. The location is within a museum so has very interesting surroundings while you dine.

We had lunch at this restaurant and the experience was fabulous. The food, presentation, absence and service left nothing to be desired. I would definitely recommend this establishment for anyone who happens to be in Cusco, Peru.

The food in this restaurant is to die for. The flavours must be experienced to fully appreciate. Presentation is brilliant. Service is very good (John was particularly attentive and helpful, a real professional). The lamb main and kisses for sweets were superb. Don't miss a visit to MAP if you are in Cusco.

The river rock hot ceviche, osso buco, and mandarin dessert are to die for! I was dreaming of this meal during my Salkantay Trek which began the next day.

This is a small resturant in Cusco with food that is just of the highest quality . Presentation was great, taste was even better. A 3 course fixed price menu that has you wishing you could eat more. Portions very filling. Taste was great.!!! Highly recommend this for a wonderful dinning experience.

If you want to have a gastronomic expirience in Cuzco, this is a nice place, we all had lamb (group of 8) and was amazing, not cheap for Peruvian standard. Desserts were even better, we had almost all of them.

MAP Café is in a cobble stone courtyard a couple of blocks away from the city's main square. The service was friendly and professional without being cold. The menu had something for everyone. My wife and I enjoyed great Peruvian appetizers, main courses and deserts. The presentation was very nice, without being over the top. I don't think you could... More
